Re: Mac Pro only starts in safe mode

Hello. A couple of things to try. I Think they will work. One is to restart while pressing the Command Option and P and R keys. (This resets the PRAM) the computer will start with chimes and then start again with chimes. Allow this to happen 3 times and then let computer to start all the way. If this still takes you to safe mode, you could do an archive re-install of the OS from the OS disk. Press c key with disk in disk drive and choose 'archive reinstall' from menu. Perhaps this should be last option. Before this, try repairing permissions from utilities from disk. Of course, it could simply be a stuck space-bar key which will always start Mac in safe mode.
